Istanbul International Bus Station (Otogar)
This is the domestic and international bus hub of Istanbul. A lot of the bus companies operate a free shuttle bus between the Otogar and Taksim Square or Sultanahmet. If you’re booking a ticket out of İstanbul from a bus office in Taksim (or elsewhere), ask about this service. They'll usually request you be at the bus office around an hour before your bus is due to leave the Otogar and a minibus will pick you up and take you from the office to your bus at the Otogar. And, if you're just arriving in Istanbul by bus, talk to your driver or someone at the bus company to see about getting a shuttle from the Otogar to Taksim Square or Sultanahment. They should be able to hook you up.
